* [[Creator/PGWodehouse P.G. Wodehouse]] gently mocks the convention with Yvonne in his "Sir Agravaine"; she is a distinctly plain girl, and the quest she brings Sir Agravaine into turns out to be of a highly surprising nature.

The '''Damsel Errant''' is the DistaffCounterpart of the KnightErrant, a StockCharacter of the ChivalricRomance. They form a complementary pair; he is seeking adventure and she knows where adventures are to be found. ''Not'' to be confused with the DamselInDistress, though she probably knows a few in need of succor.
